Flex2COM IoT-Gateway

Powerful industrial communication

Flex2COM is a gateway for industrial Ethernet communication in real time. Based on the Renesas RZ/N1D heterogeneous multi-core processor, the gateway provides a mature solution for multi-protocol fieldbus communication.

The operating systems Linux Yocto is available for the SBC-RZN1D. Complete the SBC with a casing. More informations to this solution: Flex2COM IoT Gateway

High performance with low power consumption

The integrated R-IN Engine subsystem of the RZ/N1D stands for Renesas Industrial Network Controller. It was developed for the requirements of Industry 4.0. It consists of a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M3 RISC CPU with 2 MB RAM as well as a Gigabit Ethernet MAC (GMAC) and an RTOS accelerator HW-RTOS. This concept enables high speed and real time with low power consumption. For industrial multi-protocol communication, the R-IN Engine is supplemented by a 5-port Ethernet switch and slave controller for Sercos III and EtherCAT.

Support of various protocols

Flex2COM offers the user two 100 Mbit interfaces for industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, Profinet CCB RT1, EtherNet /IP or Sercos III. In addition, there are two 1 Gbit interfaces for TCP/IP communication, two CAN 2.0B interfaces with CANopen support and three UART interfaces.

Flexible choice of operating

Flex2COM is optimized for Linux and ThreadX. If required, it supports Android, QNX and FreeRTOS.
